COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Launched on December 26th 1989 @ 9% abv. Abv reduced from 9% to 8.5% in 2003.
The particular character and the unique taste of "Delirium Tremens" result from the use of three different kinds of yeast. Its very original packing, which resembles cologne ceramics, and the colourful label contribute to its success.
In 1997, Stuart A. Kallen nominated Delirium Tremens as "best beer in the world". A gold medal during the "world beer championships" in Chicago (1998) confirmed that worldwide recognition.

beedman (60) - Wonju, SOUTH KOREA - SEP 22, 2006
11.2oz pale golden colour with small but lasting foam. Has a nice fruity aroma and tastes quite unique . . something like bubble gum noticable, but not quite. As it warms alcohol is more noticable, and at some point an apricot seed like taste appears. Some hints of metallic flavour present. Finishes with nice slightly bitter hop flavour.

janubio (761) - SPAIN - SEP 22, 2006
Pale golden colour, it poors a big foam that fades quickly. Nice smell of pear, exotic fruits, coriander, oranges and a little of horseblanket. Medium to stronog body, it tastes of tropical fruits, spices, oranges, some other fruits I cant tell. A light dry finish. And a nice and original bottle and label.

tap at the Yard House - Pours orangish with a moderate head and citrusy aroma with a little alcohol. The flavor is sweet with yeast and citrus notes and a hint of spice. Its medium bodied, easy to drink, and has a light, dry finish.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2006
Draught @ beerbistro, Toronto: The LCBO banned this because of the name, but thankfully the folks at beerbistro convinced the brewery to let them carry it. Came a light-orange/yellow with very little head that retreated to thin lacing quickly. Aroma was sweet malts and fruits with spices and prevalent alcohol. Taste is quite nice with a plethora of fruits and spices alongside malt and yeast. The warnings of alcohol on warming are quite true, drink it fast or suffer the consequences. Still, a really interesting beer and one Id have again.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2006
this beer poured a hazy orange colour, with a large white head. smells of sweet malts and fruits like hefes. i love the palate it is very tingly in my mouth and makes it come alive. the flovour is sweet but has an alcohol linger to it. this is an ok beer not the best in the world.

TheRoot (38) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2006
On tap at the Bier Market.... It poured a clear bright yellow colour with a creamy white head. Not a very strong scent but a nice strong flavour like a fine weise beer. A little strong on the finish with hints of alcohol.

I really enjoyed this beer. I had it down at the Bier Markt in Toronto. Its a nice place that has about 50 beers on tap but perhaps each beer suffers from competition. This beer had no head on it. Tasty Bengian spices and a nice quick short-lasting aftertaste. I call it the strong beer that tastes light. Very nice. Very palatable.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Pours a yellowish orange, with a 2-finger head that lasts and coats the glass. I really enjoy the aroma here - that classic Belgian banana and spice, and I also get faint hints of that bubble-gum that some raters have mentioned. Tastewise, this is your prototypical Belgian. Nothing outstanding, but certainly nothing out-of-place or offensive. Spicy to the highest degree, with yeast and citrus coming through. A pleasant amount of carbonation; it doesnt sit on the tongue, but probably shouldnt exactly be called watery.
